What to Watch when the Writers Go on Strike??

December 27, 2007 Leave a comment
As many of you may know, the WGA has been on strike for quite some time now. It has led to quite a few changes in the expected TV schedules and a few shows getting shorter seasons ( Heroes for example). But with the New Year coming up, there are a few options that open up as well.

  1. Smallville

This great series continues its 7th season on the 31st of January. I think they still have a few episodes remaining before they stop. For more info check here: Kryptonsite.

  1. Prison Break

Prison Break returns with the adventures of Micheal on the 14th of January.

  1. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Terminator fans rejoice. A dedicated series to the exploits of Sarah Connor after the events of T2 starts airing on the 13th of Jan. Check out a small teaser below.

More info here Terminatorsite.

  1. Lost

More good news on the way. Lost returns with season 4 on the 31st of Jan. Check the trailer below.

Till the writers get what they deserve enjoy the above. :-D

REVIEW: I Am Legend

December 27, 2007 5 comments

I Am Legend starts off with a general man triumphs over cancer kind of press and news releases and then quickly takes you to a totally deserted New York city. OK, something went terribly wrong with the cure. However, something also went terribly wrong with the film.
The first half an hour is great. The evacuated ruins of New York, Will Smith hunting deer ( Yes! in NY) etc etc, you start believing that this can just get better. Unfortunately, besides Will Smith, who delivers a constant and good acting performance, pretty much every thing else just falls apart. The graphics used to render the ‘Dark Seekers’ are bad in comparison to those used to render NY. And moreover how come every human affected by the virus look so same?? I mean it looks like they made one model and then copy pasted them everywhere.

GNOME Do allows you to quickly search for many objects present in your GNOME desktop environment (applications, Evolution contacts, Firefox bookmarks, files, artists and albums in Rhythmbox, Pidgin buddies) and perform commonly used commands on those objects (Run, Open, Email, Chat, Play, etc.).
